Appraisal reviews "have to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "should also demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which describes the scope of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also notes that "some institutions reinforce regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their high-risk or higher-value contracts as a way to assist in revealing valuation complications."
