Moreover, they "should announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which describes the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some institutions augment regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-risk or high-value transactions as a means to aid in discovering valuation disputes."
