They "must also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which gives an account of the scope of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some institutions add routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-liability or high-value affairs as a means to aid in exposing valuation problems."
