The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "have to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality." In addition, they "should denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which describes the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some financial institutions augment periodic reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for any of their higher-risk or large-value contracts as a way to aid in identifying valuation concerns."
