According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "have to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the methods by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality." In addition, they "should demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some institutions add periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or larger-value affairs as a way to aid in discovering valuation problems."
