Appraisal reviews "have to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the process by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. Moreover, they "should denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some institutions supplement periodic reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for some of their higher-liability or higher-value contracts as a control to help in discovering valuation issues."
