According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality." They "must also show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which describes the scope of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some financial institutions augment regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-liability or higher-value contracts as a method to help in addressing valuation dilemmas."
