Appraisal reviews "should decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "should indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which describes the range of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some institutions reinforce routine reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a number of their high-risk or larger-value transactions as a way to aid in uncovering valuation concerns."
