Appraisal reviews "ought to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the actions by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "should also denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the engagement letter, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some institutions augment typical reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or greater-value affairs as a means to help in discovering valuation disputes."
