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)?
