According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "ought to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the procedure by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality." They "must also denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which describes the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some institutions add typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or higher-value contracts as a control to aid in identifying valuation dilemmas."
