Appraisal reviews "ought to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "should announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which describes the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions reinforce typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or large-value transactions as a channel to help in discovering valuation concerns."
