The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "should verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality." In addition, they "should indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some banks add typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their high-risk or large-value contracts as a control to aid in revealing valuation disputes."
