Appraisal reviews "ought to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "should also show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some banks reinforce typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or larger-value transactions as a control to assist in discovering valuation issues."
