The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "ought to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality." In addition, they "must announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which describes the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some banks add typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their higher-risk or larger-value dealings as a means to help in addressing valuation concerns."
