Appraisal reviews "must find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "must announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some institutions supplement regular reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or large-value contracts as a means to help in addressing valuation issues."
