Appraisal reviews "ought to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the methods by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. They "must also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions supplement periodic reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for any of their high-risk or larger-value transactions as a method to aid in discovering valuation disputes."
