As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "ought to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality." In addition, they "must denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment."
