The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "should decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality." Moreover, they "must demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which describes the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some institutions supplement regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or higher-value contracts as a way to assist in exposing valuation problems."
