As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "have to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the method by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality." Moreover, they "must announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the outlook of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also states that "some financial institutions augment regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-risk or large-value dealings as a way to aid in discovering valuation issues."
