As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "ought to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality." They "should also indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which gives an account of the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some banks reinforce routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their higher-liability or high-value dealings as a method to aid in identifying valuation complications."
