Please let me know if this is not an appropriate question for Biostars, and I can delete it.

What is the relationship between Medical Science & Computing (MSC) and NIH? When I search for a job in NIH as a software engineer or whatnot, there are many posts of MSC jobs for NIH. Is MSC an IT department of NIH, or an HR company that helps NIH to find employees, or just an "Outsourcing companies and outsourcing suppliers" that provide support for NIH?

If I am an employee of MSC, am I directly a government employee with better job security? Or I am just an employee of a commercial company (MSC in this case)?

MSC appears to be a contracting company. There are tons of federal contractors in Washington DC area. You would very likely be an employee of MSC but will get NIH mandated benefits and work for NCBI projects. You will be a federal contractor not a federal employee. Federal contracting jobs can be as secure as any other job.

This is not related to bioinformatics and you should delete this thread once you read this answer.
