According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "have to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the actions by which the collateral valuation is collected ensures independence and quality." They "should also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some banks add routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their higher-liability or larger-value transactions as a channel to assist in uncovering valuation complications."
