The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "should find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the method by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality." Moreover, they "must signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the range of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also states that "some institutions add routine reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or greater-value contracts as a means to assist in exposing valuation issues."
