Another factor may have been the spurious logic used to remove them in the first place (i.e. they were not mentioned frequently in the Auditor General’s report, therefore they were not involved). With all due respect to the Auditor General, the scope of the audit was limited in certain aspects, and could not have identified everyone involved at every level (although they found plenty). In the case with Ross (who was deeply involved in many aspects of most projects run out of the governor’s office at that time) it is hard to imagine he lacks involvement or knowledge that may shed some light on the circumstances.

Everyone who was subpoenaed will probably end up shelling out $10K for a lawyer, even if they did nothing wrong.
Subpoenas are serious things folks, and that power should be used judiciously, like a search warrant.
So, anyone who doesn’t mind if the government comes and searches your house, cheer on. Me, I prefer something akin to probable cause. Heck, even the Auditor General doesn’t think DCEO should be testifying.
