The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "should conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality." They "must also show whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which describes the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some banks supplement periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-liability or high-value dealings as a way to help in identifying valuation problems."
