In a statement Wednesday night after McConnell set the vote in motion, Ford's counsel wrote: "An FBI supplemental background investigation that did not include an interview of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford - nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony - can not be called an investigation".
Last week Professor Christine Blasey Ford testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that Mr Kavanaugh, 53, and another man had assaulted her when they were teenagers in the 1980s.
The reports are not expected to be made public.

Republicans have accused Democrats of seeking to delay the confirmation of Mr Kavanaugh in the hope that they will make gains in the mid-term elections in November and stop his appointment altogether.
"I believe Dr Ford, and I believe Kavanaugh is part of a Big Old Boys club that is going to protect him no matter what", said Angela Trzepkowski, 55, from Middletown, Delaware. Heitkamp's decision left Senator Joe Manchin as the only undecided Democrat.
Prof Ford's lawyer said eight people were not interviewed who could corroborate her claims, while Ms Ramirez's lawyer said more than 20 witnesses were not contacted.
"This looks to be the product of an incomplete investigation, I don't know", Feinstein told reporters on Thursday morning.
Moderate Republican Susan Collins of ME, who also has not announced how she will vote, said it "appears very thorough".
"The harsh and unfair treatment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh is having an incredible upward impact on voters", Trump said.
Flake, Collins and Murkowski all have criticized Trump for mocking Ford at a political rally in MS on Tuesday.
All 100 senators, split in the GOP's favour 51-49, have access to one copy of the file in a secure room, to prevent leaks of confidential information under the Privacy Act, according to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
