Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
No, you cannot be forced to give any statement or deposition without subpoena or court order. As far as right to an attorney, it depends on the reason for the deposition as to whether or not there is any legal right to have an attorney present. So based only on the information you provided, no you cannot be forced to give a statement/deposition to anyone from the OIG or DA or anyone without a subpoena or court order.
