According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the procedure by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality." In addition, they "must indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the scope of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also states that "some institutions add regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their higher-liability or higher-value contracts as a channel to assist in addressing valuation complications."
