Appraisal reviews "should decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the procedure by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "should also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions augment regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their high-risk or high-value transactions as a channel to assist in addressing valuation problems."
